Application Information and Resources

The BPO has launched Phase 3 of the New NY Broadband Program. The Phase 3 Request for Proposal Guidelines are available here. Phase 3 Frequently Asked Questions can be viewed here. The BPO is now accepting applications for broadband funding on the Consolidated Funding Application (CFA) Portal. Click here to access the CFA Portal. The deadline for submission of Phase 3 applications has been extended to 4:30pm EST, August 31, 2017​.  

To begin developing your proposals, please review the Phase 3 Lists of Eligible Census Blocks, provided below in Excel (.xlsx), Shapefile (.shp) and KML/KMZ format.  These are the final Phase 3 Lists of Eligible Census Blocks.

Please note, the BPO has removed Census Blocks from the Phase 3 Lists of Eligible
Census Blocks where it has determined that either service meeting the Program’s broadband speed goals, or a commitment to provide such service, is currently in place. 

If your company currently offers broadband service to all locations in any one or more
Census Blocks identified on these Lists, and would like to challenge their inclusion in Phase 3,
please follow the instructions provided (here).  As noted in the instructions, Challengers must
complete the following affidavit (here) and List of Challenged Census Blocks (here). 
No challenges will be accepted after 4:30pm on April 13, 2017.
